8-5-20 convalescent plasma shortage

The American Red Cross Wisconsin Chapter says a spike in COVID-19 cases has led to an emergency plasma shortage.   Red Cross spokeswoman Laura McGuire says convalescent plasma is a potentially lifesaving treatment for COVID-19 patients.  McGuire tells WFDL news convalescent plasma is going out the door quicker than it is coming in.  Convalescent plasma is plasma collected from patients who have recovered from an infection and have antibodies that might help fight that infection, in this case, those who have fully recovered from COVID-19.
